2018 Houston TV Channels

If you've brought (or are bringing) a TV or TV tuner to Houston to take advantage of the cable TV feeds in the pit, here's what you need to do in the menus:
  • Set the channel map to "Cable", not "Air"
  • If it's configurable, you want "STD" or "Standard" tuning, not HRC or IRC
  • You will almost certainly need to force a channel re-scan.
  • Be patient. The RF channels they're using are up in the 90s and above, so it will take a while for the scan to find them
  • (RF channels don't match the channel numbers you will see and use. Don't sweat it.)

(The TV cables run across the floor behind your pits. Just look, you'll find it.)

Channel List
1 FirstTV (This was showing color bars when I set up this morning)
2 FirstLV (This showed an empty table with names of hosts who hadn't yet arrived.)
3 Carver live video
4 Carver rankings
5 Galileo live video
6 Galileo rankings
7 Hopper live video
8 Hopper rankings
9 Newton live video
10 Newton rankings
11 Roebling live video
12 Roebling rankings
13 Turing live video
14-1 Turing rankings (Yes, this was really a dashed channel. Config issue at the transmission end.)

The live video channels are 720p, the rankings channels are 1080i.

Re: 2018 Houston TV Channels

Does anyone know if Detroit is planning on having a similar setup? I don't remember this being an option at STL

Re: 2018 Houston TV Channels

I scrounged in my basement and found an old HDHomeRun tuner box that we'll set up in our pit and establish a local (wired only) LAN where we can stream the video to a laptop. I have it successfully picking up OTA TV in my house, hopefully it will work with the cable setup.

What devices are others using apart from an actual TV in your pit?

An AVerTV Volar Hybrid Q USB tuner that we used last year. We only added a real TV because the one from my home office fit in a suitcase XD.
